Well I am happy to report that the building work shall finally commence on our kitchen diner in a day or two. I have lived with a half finished kitchen for quite a while now, so can't wait to dig my pretties out and begin faffing with displaying them. Here is my little helper helping me prep in readiness for the builders coming, the more jobs we can get done before they descend on us, the more pennies I shall have left in my purse, so hope to do as much as we can before they are here.
For health and safety reasons I want to point out that my three year old is infact on top of a very dinky little ladder, quite shabby chic actually, and I was supervising throughout. Maybe we should cloud over the fact that he also has a sharp implement in his hand. Well a scraper, but in the hands of a three year old....
I have to say he has been brilliant, a natural, he knew exactly what to do and took instruction very well. Mmmmm maybe I shall have to get him to do more jobs around the house.
Obviously I am clearing the kitchen of my pretties that are tucked away, as I wish no harm to come to them during all this banging and knocking, and boy I didn't really realise how much I have gathered. All saved up, shiny and new for the grand kitchen opening event!
Take my tea towels, now I probably have about 10 on the go at any one given moment, some in the wash, some found in children's bedrooms, some underneath beds, some actually being used to wipe dishes.We don't have, nor desire a dishwasher, 8 hands are enough for us to get the job done, so tea towels are a big thing in this house. Imagine my delight then, when I found my secret stash of bottom drawer tea towels, I wonder if they shall ever get used ;)
